Single-Fill™ Composite System
SonicFill 2 transforms tedious, repetitive posterior restorations into easy and reliable SingleFill placement: filling cavities up to 5mm in depth in a single increment, with a single material – and no liner or capping layer. Click here to see how SonicFIll 2 works.
In a Class By Itself
Building upon the award-winning performance of its predecessor, SonicFill 2 meets the key requirements of a successful bulk fill procedure dentists deserve and expect.
- Excellent adaptation and handling
- High depth of cure
- Lasting marginal integrity
- Improved esthetics, durability and more working time

How Does it Work?
Retaining the same patented sonic-activation technology that made the original version so successful, special rheological modifiers in the SonicFill 2 filler system have a dramatic reaction to the sonic energy applied through the handpiece during placement. This reduces the viscosity of the material up to 84% creating adaptation similar to a flowable, to ensure intimate adaptation between the composite and bonded surface. The new filler system also enables excellent gloss, color-matching, wear resistance and strength to make bulk filling even easier and more reliable.
Know Your SonicFill Handpiece
The SonicFill Handpiece is air-driven and connects to dental units using a MULTIflex compatible coupling. The recommended operating pressure range is from 36-50 psi. The dispensing rate is selected by turning the regulating ring at the base of the handpiece. The dispensing rate range 1 through 5 only affects the flow rate of the composite - it does not change the composite viscosity.
Cleaning and Maintenance
The SonicFill Handpiece requires basic maintenance that includes cleaning after each use and a lubrication spray (such as the SonicFill Handpiece Lubrication Spray) once per week.
- Automated cleaners, such as the QuattroCare™ can be used or it can be manually cleaned between uses. Automated cleaners from other manufacturers will work as well – see the Handpiece Directions for Use for more information.
- The SonicFill Handpiece Lubrication Spray is available through all authorized Kerr™ dealers and should be used once weekly. The handpiece can be disinfected and sterilized like any other handpiece. However, it should never be submerged in cleaning (such as an ultrasonic bath) or sterilization fluid.
The industry is talking about SonicFill – the bulk fill dental composite system that uses sonic energy to make posterior restorations easier, faster and more profitable than you ever imagined. See what your peers have to say about this innovative solution.

The ideal air pressure is between 30-50 psi.
Yes, SonicFill can be used on any air line that has the proper pressure and is equipped with a MULTIflex coupler.
Yes, SonicFill Handpiece will work with any MULTIflex coupler.
Yes, SonicFill Handpiece can be cleaned with automated systems. Please observe the manufacturer's directions for use for the cleaning system, and review the handpiece directions for use regarding use of these systems.
Before disinfection, the handpiece should be cleaned using a brush under running water between uses. The SonicFill Handpiece Lubrication Spray should be used at least once weekly, after cleaning but before sterilization. Use of the QuattroCare system eliminates the need for the lubrication spray.
Kerr recommends CaviCide™ or CaviWipes™ by Kerr TotalCare for disinfection.
No. The o-ring on the MULTIflex coupler blocks the flow of water into the handpiece. If the o-ring is damaged, water may leak from the back of the handpiece, but the handpiece will not be damaged. This simply means that the o-ring on the coupler has worn and should be replaced.
Only SonicFill and SonicFill 2 Composite can be used with the SonicFill Handpiece. These are the only materials that are specifically designed to react to the sonic energy, and are the only materials available in the specially designed Unidose™ tip.
The best way to control the flow rate of the SonicFill Handpiece is by using the regulating ring at the base of the unit. Setting 5 is the fastest setting, while setting 1 is the lowest. For the first few uses, you may wish to use an intermediate speed (3) until you are familiar with the operation of the handpiece. After that, setting 5 will be appropriate for many restorations.
